Lumie Bedbug: Review

Since Freya went to nursery, well scratch that. Since before Freya started going to nursery, her sleep started to go a little awry and gone were the days of her sleeping solidly through the night. 

Our little monkey decided she would not only be awake more during the nights, she would also take up residence in our bed. Yep you heard me, she started sleeping in our bed…a lot! This was something I never intended to do and isn’t something I intend to keep going but when you both work full time and have to be on the road by 6:30am for work, you do what you have to.

We were kindly offered the chance to review the Lumie Bedbug just in time for Freya starting nursery and thought anything would be worth a try at this point.

The Brightest Setting on the Lumie Bedbug

We started using the Lumie light immediately and tried a few different settings out including the sunset options which allow the light to fade over a period of 15 minutes and even having the light on a lighter setting to see if she preferred going to bed with more light.

We also tested out putting it on a darker setting which still allowed light in the room but was a lot less bright and to be honest; this is the setting we have stuck with for her.

Overall we have found the Lumie Bedbug a fantastic product but has it been the solution to our problems… No not really. That could be because Freya’s just not in the mood for sleeping these days or that she’s a bit on the young side for a product like this to work it’s magic yet. That being said, we are sticking with it and hoping that as she grows older she will benefit from it a lot more. The light is a fabulous product and would make a very cute addition to any little one’s bedroom.

Preparing for the Festive Season: A Style Guide

The upcoming festive season is one which is jam-packed with parties, events and special occasions. So, of course, you need to look and feel your best for every event you attend over the Christmas period! Luckily, with a few simple tips to follow, this is easier than ever. From finding the perfect outfit to the added extras to truly make your look sparkle, below are the essential areas you need to focus on this year. 

Dress to Impress

Whether you choose a sleek and simple jumpsuit for the office party, or you wear a mini skirt for a night out with the girls, what’s most important is how it makes you feel. Regardless of whether or not you love a particular style, if you don’t feel confident and comfortable in it, don’t wear it! There’s nothing more disheartening than feeling self-conscious throughout a party and wanting to hide away in a corner. To have you feeling and looking incredible, you can find beautiful plus size outfits or the perfect pair of relaxed jeans and boots from the comfort of your living room.

With that in mind, the festive season is a time for glitz and glamour, so don’t shy away from sequins and glitter! However, if this will make you feel like a Strictly Come Dancing contestant, why not opt for velvet instead? Velvet dresses are a luxurious addition to any wardrobe. Choose a rich, darker tone, such as navy or burgundy to wow everyone at the Christmas party.

The Last-minute Gift Giver

Hello to my lovely readers and my apologies for not writing a post for a bit. Trying to balance working full-time/commuting 2 hours a day/being a mum/doing housework/writing a blog and setting up a business is definitely a challenge and I’m still getting used to using my time effectively. For now though, I am back with a brand new post and it’s all about the perfect service for those last-minute gift givers out there.

A couple of weeks ago it was Bob’s (my husband for those of you just tuning in) birthday and rather than buy him a crappy gift that he wouldn’t really want, I asked him outright for something he had his eye on. Cue a dash to the supermarket and my old friend Amazon, I purchased 2 bottles of whiskey and placed them ready in a gift bag. Makes me sound very thoughtless doesn’t it? but hold your horses! I then decided to get something a bit more personal but with limited time to do it, I knew I needed something with a quick turnaround service.
